If you’re a proud cat parent, you must be familiar with the furry conundrum known as shedding in cats. 

It’s like an ever-present gift from your feline companion, decorating your clothes, furniture, and pretty much everything else in their path. 

In this article, we’ll embark on a humorous journey filled with verified facts to help you manage the shedding madness and maintain your sanity.

Ah, shedding—the bane of every cat owner’s existence. When it comes to shedding, cats truly embrace the idea of sharing. They leave their fur on your favourite black dress, your freshly cleaned sofa, and even in your breakfast cereal (cat-flavoured fibre, anyone?). 

So, what causes this magical fur-throwing phenomenon? It all boils down to the natural cycle of hair growth and renewal, and we’re here to survive it together!

Now all join your hands to offer gratitude to the inventor of the lint roller. As much as you are tempted to “lint roll” your cat, please don’t (it doesn’t work. We have reliable sources!). Keep a lint roller at home and another in your car to keep the cat-fetti out of your clothes and mouth.

Have you ever wondered why cat fur seems to defy the laws of gravity? It’s as if they’ve discovered an anti-gravity hair potion! After all they did attend Hogwarts. 

Cat fur is designed to be lightweight and agile, ready to take flight at the slightest breeze. It’s a testament to their cosmic feline powers!

Keeping your cat’s contributions to your interior decor can be kept in check by opting for hair and coat supplements. Some cats require more essential fatty acids, amino acids and vitamins than their companions. It’s definitely not their fault. 

Your cat may require a flea treatment since excess mites and fleas can cause scratching which releases the nature’s confetti into air.

Believe it or not, your cat’s diet can influence shedding. Providing a balanced and nutritious diet enriched with omega-3 fatty acids can help maintain healthy skin and coat, reducing excessive shedding. 

Your cat’s diet should depend on their breed, age and neutering status. Persians and Himalayans do shed a lot but that doesn’t mean Indie Maus don’t. The two former breeds have longer hairs that makes them look more guilty. It’s simply unfair! 

Each breed requires a specially designed high-quality diet to keep shedding to a minimum.
